Siemens Gamesa Launches 14MW Offshore Wind Turbine

Wind turbine maker Siemens Gamesa has unveiled a new SG 14-222 DD offshore Direct Drive wind turbine with 14-megawatt (MW) capacity.The capacity can reach up to 15 MW using the company’s Power Boost function, a 222-meter diameter rotor, 108-meter long blades, and a 39,000 m2 swept area.The 14 MW capacity allows one SG 14-222 DD machine able to provide enough energy to power approximately 18,000 average European households every year. Approximately 30 SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbines could furthermore cover the annual electricity consumption of Bilbao, Spain, Siemens Gamesa said."Offshore

Fugro Completes UXO Survey in Germany

Fugro has completed an unexploded ordnance (UXO) screening project for Siemens AG at the site of a new gas-fired power station in Herne, Germany.More than 1,300 foundation pile locations were screened for UXO and cleared down to 15 m below ground level without affecting other site preparation activities.In Germany, any areas that suffered bombing during the Second World War must have a UXO site survey before construction can begin. “With Fugro’s UXO solution, the flexibility of using it in parallel with ongoing site-leveling activities and its accuracy in detecting ferromagnetic
